Donald Trump met Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle but the monarch was forced at one point to walk around the U.S. president after he halted abruptly during a ceremonial inspection of the guard. In a Good Morning Britain video clip obtained by The Mirror, Trump refused to say what he talked to the Queen about, but insisted that she is "beautiful" both "inside and out". Let me tell you what I can talk about ... she is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so lovely, when I say handsome - inside and out. "She's a fantastic woman; so much energy and smart and sharp", the president told the Daily Mail on Saturday. She is so sharp. At one point on the video you can see him cut her off and she has to step around behind him.

Trump also took a jab at Democrats, adding that no Democrat could beat him: "I don't see anybody".

'I think no matter what happens, they're going to have carve outs and they're going to make a deal with us. The Brits responded to his arrival with acerbic style, creating a "F*** Trump" crop circle, launching a Baby Trump blimp, and drawing a crowd of almost 250,000 protesters.

In contrast to his kind words for the Queen, President Trump appeared less fond of the nation's Prime Minister Theresa May.

When asked if he felt the Queen liked him, he said: "Well I don't want to speak for her, but I can tell you I liked her".

And he warned her any attempts to maintain close ties with the European Union would make a lucrative USA trade deal very unlikely. A report in Vanity Fair read, "She wore a buttercup gown with shoulder capes that says, "I'm the princess now".

When pushed on if he discussed Brexit with the monarch when they met for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday, Mr Trump said: "I did. I think she represents her country so well", Trump said.

The interview came before Mr Trump and his wife left Britain yesterday before flying to Helsinki to meet Mr Putin.

A YouGov poll of 1,648 British adults conducted on Monday and Tuesday found that half thought Trump's working visit to Britain should go ahead, with just over a third thinking it should be canceled. "So that usually helps". "I am sure this was not intentionally done, but it did not look very good".

In a 1997 interview, just weeks after Diana's death, USA radio host Howard Stern asked Trump if he "could have nailed her". "I mean, what are we doing?"

When asked about his comments on the PM, he outright denied criticizing her, dismissed the question as "fake news" and said the publication failed to include all the positive things he said about May. "He's very smart, great personality, he's amusing and tough, good negotiator".
